Full Answer

Lead's atomic weight is 82, and its atomic mass is 207.2 atomic mass units. Its symbol on the periodic table is Pb. The melting point of lead is 621.5 degrees Fahrenheit, and its boiling point is 3,164 degrees Fahrenheit.

Lead resists corrosion, and it is soft and malleable. However, lead is toxic to the heart, kidneys and organs and tissues of the reproductive system and nervous system. It causes problems with children's nervous system development.
